Soul and R&B are experiencing a serious revival in the UK. Artists such as Kelela, Banks and Sinead Harnett are pushing the genre to credible spaces it’s not been before.
It’s this reason, that London based single Alice D, swerved off her path as a ‘Popstar-in-the-making’. Influenced by her mother Sara Dallin (Bananarama) – She had always found the musicians path an inevitability, rather than a choice. Her previous release I Don’t Owe You was co-written with Eddie Jenkins (Example, The Streets) and showcased her musical direction and lyrical ability. Alice D crowdfunded the music video for the song, which her and her girlfriends filmed and created together. The track was played on Gary Crowley’s BBC Radio London Show and she has received previous support from BBC 1xtra.
On her new single More 2 U, Alice is keeping the vibe very much grounded in the UK. Co-written with Oscar Scheller, it’s a smooth piece of alt-RnB, set to cement Alice as one of the countries rising talents.
